Journal of Willis Robert Williams 

The following are selected notes from the personal journal of Willis R. Williams found in the Tabitha 
DeVisconti Collection, East Carolina Manuscript Collection, J. Y. Joyner Library, East Carolina University, 
Greenville, NC. The location of the original journal is unknown and we would very much like to find it 
for the sake of local history. Willis R. Williams (1826-1910) was the son of Robert Williams, and grandson 
of John Williams, Revolutionary War soldier. Willis was prominent in NC politics and was a Senator from 
Pitt County. His biography and photograph are in Henry T. King's, Sketches of Pitt County. A group of 
Willis R. Williams letters are also in the Southern Historical Collection, UNC Chapel Hill. Contributed by 
Roger Kammerer.

DECEMBER 23- At 11 A. M. occured an event extraordinary in our family. My oldest daughter was 
married to Louis B. DUPREE by Rev. Josephus LATHAM. I was not present to see the ceremony. I had 
refused to give my consent as I thought it an unsuitable match- she being older than he and many other 
things of a desecrating nature In the past he has shown no worthiness or ability to demand respect. But 
we can hope for the best Though she married in direct opposition to my wishes and demands a disobedi- 
ent girl, showing a bad precedent to her younger sisters My prophecy is she will rue it (notation April 28 
1887 In writing this page I was displeased but its all died one). 

1887 

JUNE 30- Grandfather said the coldest year N.C. ever witnessed was in 1816 when people plowed with 
coats on, even overcoats. He lived to be 84 years. The longest drought I ever saw in summer was in 1879- 
We had no rain to be of any benefit for 53 days- Then came the greatest rain that ever fell here since I 
lived- It was at least 12 inches- Fences were washed away- In the bottoms ponds were formed deep as a 
man's head. One of my sons, Tom took refuge in a negro house and had to wade up to his neck to get 
home Ament out in the field a steamboat could have na vag ated the road. My farm washed so that it has 
never gotten over it. Whole acres drifted off the ground was so dry and dusty caused the washing to be 
much worse. 

NOVEMBER 7- On the 7 Mr. James W. DUPREE died about 5 A. M.- he was the father of one of my son's 
wives- Jimo- He disinherited her and ignored her and yet the day when he was burned she only wept 
over his grave-his brother a mean low graded wretch owns all the property- 

NOVEMBER 8- Went to burial of James W. DUPREE- He was about 68. Aman that never tried to make 
the world any better yet was not devoid of charity to the poor- Left two children, only recognized one of 
them 

NOVEMBER 10- My daughter who married Louis DUPREE gave birth to a daughter about 10 lbs- on Sat 
the 5th of Nov 1887- Thus it is I am a grandfather 

DECEMBER 28- 1 left to see my sister again arrived about dark to find that she had passed away she 
died about 12 N on the 28th. 

DECEMBER 29- followed the remains of my sister to the old burying ground placed her by the saide of 
her husband killed 1860. 

1888 

FEBRUARY 18- Went to Greenville had an interview with Dr. Richard WILLIAMS about the William's 
family- Learnt many things of interest- 

APRIL 28- Left home after an early breakfast and went for the boat at Dupree's landing. Boat late low 
water, heavy freight- arrived about three hours behind time at Washington 

MAY 24- Took the boat to Tarboro- stayed that with my cousin Jane JENKINS who was my uncle's 
daughter a Miss DUPREE. 

JUNE 4- My wife and my two daughters Rosa & Emma- 

JUNE 15- Just heard that Aunt Sally DUPREE is dead, poor woman she has had a hard time in this world 
for the last year or two. A bad son did her much harm and caused her to shed many a scalding tear. A 
good woman- She never saw a minute in all her life that she would not have done a kindness even to an 
enemy if she had & had one a good woman gone- Kind and generous- 

JUNE 16- Went to the interment of my Aunt Sally DUPREE- She died in Halifax Co- was buried in the 
old graveyard where sleeps her children, her sisters, her mother and Husband. She was the last of her 
family and was about 64 yrs old.

Dangerous Row 

Daily Delta, New Bern, NC, Tues., April 5, 1858 
Quite a noisy quarrel took place in the suburbs of the city, on Broad street last Sunday afternoon, between 
a Riley LAUGHINGHOUSE and others, whose names we did not learn. Both parties talked long and 
loud, and after a while got to using some such words as 'pistols,' bowie-knives,' &c, soon causing things 
to look rather squally for us; in lieu of which we thought 'discretion the better part of valor,' and pro- 
ceeded to beat a hurried retreat from the scene of action, thereby escaping the threatening danger. We 
have since learned that there was no serious damage done. We did not see or ascertain the particulars or 
origin of the affair, but judging from general appearances, we were inclined to construe it as the effects of 
impure fluid. 

Cutting Scrape 

King's Weekly, Fri., Oct. 11, 1895 
A fight took place at Ira, or Staton's Mill, Saturday evening in which a negro, Albert FREEMAN was 
dangerously cut by Mr. Ed MOORE. The negro was cut several times, in various places. Drs. BAGWELL 
and WARREN attended to his injuries and found that his stomach was protruding through a cut in his 
abdomen, and that the knife had also entered the stomach. It is very probable that his injuries may prove 
fatal.

B. L. Cooper Arrested 

Eastern Reflector, Wed., Sept. 4, 1895 
This morning Chief of Police PERKINS arrested B. L. COOPER and was taking him to the guard house. 
When he stopped to unlook the prison door COOPER drew a pistol and fired twice at the officer, but 
neither shot struck him. The officer knocked COOPER down and took the pistol. COOPER was drinking. 
COOPER was tried before Mayor FORBES, this afternoon, for violation of town ordinance, and fined a 
penny and costs. He was then taken before a Magistrate under four State warrants, two for carrying 
concealed weapons, one for resisting officer and one for assault with intent to kill. In three of these cases 
he was bound over to court in the sum of $200 each, and in the case of assault with intent to kill the bond 
was placed at $300 justified. Upon failure to give these bonds he was committed to jail. Court will com- 
mence the third Monday in September. Wednesday evening Dr. W. H. BAGWELL was summoned to the 
jail to dress a wound found on B. L. COOPER'S arm. The doctor went and found a bullet lodged just 
above COOPER'S left wrist. It developes that in attempting to shoot the policeman that morning COO- 
PER shot a ball into his own arm.

John A. Quinely Biography 

Taken from Goodspeed's History of Tipton County, Tennessee. Transcribed by Janet Johnson. 
Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

"John A. QUINELY, of Tipton County, Tenn., was born in Pitt County, N. C, November 30, 
1830, and is a son of John M. and Zilpha (NELSON) QUINELY; both parents were natives of 
North Carolina. The father was a farmer all his life and was born November 17, 1793, and died 
November 22, 1863. The mother was born January 29, 1796, and died October 6, 1876. They 
moved to Tipton County, and settled eighteen miles southeast of Covington, in the Sixth 
District, but four years later bought a farm and moved twenty miles south of Covington. He 
was a Democrat, and with his wife belonged to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, but after 
his death she joined the Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church there being at the time 
disorganized. John A. QUINELY was the seventh of twelve children. After finishing his educa- 
tion he commenced farming. He was an infant when his parents moved to tipton County, and 
has always lived in the county except three years (1857-59) spent in Arkansas, and two years 
(1848-49), spent in Mississippi. On September 27, 1853, Mr. QUINELY married Miss Harriet 
FARRIS, a native of Alabama, born April 29, 1836, and they have had eleven children- four sons 
and seven daughters; two of each have died. In 1861, he enlisted in the confederate Army in 
Company A, Fifty-First Tennessee Infantry, and was in Gen. CHEATHAM'S division; he was in 
the battle of Perryville, but on account of ill health secured a discharge, and returned home 
after nearly two years service. Mr. QUINELY owns 130 acres of rich land, well improved. He is 
a Democrat and an active member of the Methodist Church, his wife and three daughters 
belonging to the same church. He stands well in the community and is a useful citizen."

"Philip ROCHE vs M SEALEY filed Mar. 15, 1793 
New Bern District 

To the Honorable the Judges of the Superior Courts of Law 

Martha SEALEY, maketh oath, and gives it to be understood by your Honors, That sometime in the year 
one thousand seven hundred and ninety one a certain Hannah PEDDY came to this deponant & offered 
to bargain for a Chair which this deponant had- That she told this deponant she would send her a mare, 
which if it suited her, she might have on part payment of the chair, after keeping her a few days on trial. 
That the said Hannah accordingly sent the mare. But the said mare, having a colt in said Hannah's stable, 
was very unruly, while in the deponant's stable, and (although it was kept with reasonable care, in the 
same stable with the deponant's creatures) on the third night effected her escape. That this deponant, 
early on the morning of the next day, sent word to the said Hannah, that the mare had disappeared, 
whereupon the said Hannah came to this deponant & told her not to be uneasy that if it suited her she 
might have the Colt in lieu of the mare- to which this deponant assented rather from a desire to avoid 
being plagued on account of the mare's escape, and accordingly the said Hannah, sent the Colt, gave her 
note for ten pounds to boot & took the chair- That afterwards & before the note became due the said 
Hannah married one Philip ROCHE, who when the note was payable Called on the deponant & solicited 
some respite which she granted- That some time after the warranted the said Philip & Hannah, who both 
Came before the magistrate, acknowledged the Justice of the demand, confessed Judgment for the 
amount of the note & prayed stay of execution- That when the days of stay of execution were exhausted 
they prayed & obtained more time from this deponant, who at last, was drove to sue out execution- That 
before the same was served, the said Philip and Hannah warranted this deponant for the value of the 
mare & obtained Judgment for eleven pounds & odd shillings- from which Judgment this deponant 
appealed That the said Philip was taken & confined on execution & took the benefit of the insolvent act, 
Swearing himself not worth anything & that no person owed him anything- That at June Term of craven 
County previous to said ROCH taking the benefit of the Act, The appeal being brought to trial, by some 
reason unknown to this deponant one of the Jury disappeared so that there was a miss-Trial- 
That at the last September Term the said Philip having there sworn out this deponant thought it useless to 
attend the Court, & her attorney being also absent when the cause was Called the Judgment of the 
Justices was affirmed, without the Cause going to the Jury, as she is informed & believes- That the said 
Philip & Hannah have since taken an execution, in pursuance of said Judgment some goods of this 
deponant- So that, without the interposition of your Honors this deponant will be compelled to pay a 
sum which she does not owe and which if she did owe should have been assessed & deducted as a sett 
off from the debt which the said Philip has sworn away- She, therefore, prays that a writ of Cediorous 
may issue to the Justices of Craven Commanding them to certify & transmit the records of the said suit to 
your Honors in the Superior Court of Law for the District of Newbern on the 19th day of March next, and 
a writ of supersedeas directed to the Sheriff of said County forbidding him to proceed on said execution- 
so that Justice may be done in principle. Martha SEALEY

Hannah ROACH maketh Oath that she agreed with the aforesaid Martha SEALY to sell her the mare 
mentioned in her deposition, which she agreed to receive on Trial for a few days, and then return her or 
pay the money. That the said Martha did receive the said mare, but instead of returning her or paying the 
price agreed upon pretended she had strayed away. And this deponant further saith, that there was no 
agreement about the Chair mentioned in the said Martha's deposition, untill long after the agreement 
about the mare, and then, the sole view of the deponant was to obtain paymt. for her, but she was un- 
warily Induced to sign the Note, by the said Martha promising to return the mare in a few days, and 
when the said Martha demanded the the money for which the said Note was given, this deponant and 
her late Husband then offered to discount the price of the mare, and come to a fair settlement with the 
said Martha, what she absolutrly refused, but took out a warrant, obtained Judgement for the amount of 
the Note, took the deponants Husband in Execution, and would admit of no compromise, where upon 
the deponant & her said husband brought this action for the price of the mare whereupon the said 
Martha went before the Justice, who tried the warrant, and confessed the agreement, and when judgment 
was rendered against her, appealed to Court, where after having the benefit of Two Trials, the Judgment 
at Justice was affirmed. 

This deponant further saith, that since the Trial of the said appeal in the County Court, the only witness, 
by whom the agreement could be proved, hath died, and she must inevitably be cast, should a new Trial 
be granted, and this deponant does believe, that the said Martha, would never have prayed the 
Certiorare, If the said witness had lived. And the deponant further saith that there strong reasons to 
Induce a belief that she the said Martha hath been guilty of a down right fraud in business, that instead of 
the mare, having strayed away. She actually exchanged or conveyed her away.

James Ringgold Deposition, 1825 



Found in the Mary Knox 1824 Estate Record, Craven County Estates; NC Archives, Raleigh, NC. Contrib- 
uted by Roger Kammerer. 

"James RINGGOLD a witness in behalf of the Petitioners in this case being sworn to testify the truth, the 
whole truth & nothing but the truth relative to the matter in controversy deposeth & saith that he is now 
from the best information he can procure about seventy one or seventy two years of age; that he under- 
stands that he was born in the State of Maryland, but at the earliest recollection which he has of himself 
he was residing in Kent County Delaware on a farm which his Father had there bought from David 
DURBOROUGH; that David DURBOROUGH brother of the said Daniel while this deponant was child 
married Rebecca the eldest sister of this Deponant; that this Deponants father died while this Deponant 
was a boy & that this Deponant then went to reside in the family of said David DURBOROUGH & there 
resided several years probably as many as seven; that after this Deponant left the house of David 
DURBOROUGH & particularly in that period of the revolutionary war when the intercourse by the 
Delaware River and Bay with Philadelphia was cut off by the British vessels of war this Deponant was 
concerned in business with the said David in waggoning to & from Sinnapuxent Inlet & the little trading 
towns in that neighbourhood; that this Deponant removed to North Carolina before the close of the 
Revolutionary war, settled first in that part of Surry county now called Stokes, & thence removed about 
the year 1789 to Pitt county where he has ever since resided; that since his removal to North Carolina he 
has twice visited Delaware, once before he came to Pitt county, & the last time about twenty years since. 
This Deponant saith that when living in the State of Delaware he personally knew David 
DURBOROUGH before named, Daniel DURBOROUGH before named both sons of Hugh 
DURBOROUGH, that he knew Elizabeth their Sister who was wife of James ROWE and Hester a sister 
who married Bartholomew MACOMB that he had often heard in the family of a brother of Daniel & 
David of the name of Benjamin who had moved to South Carolina & of Sarah a sister married to 
Campbell MILLER & mary the youngest sister married to John KNOX which two last mentioned sisters 
had removed to North Carolina, this Deponant further saith that in Newbern in North Carolina a great 
many years ago probably between thirty & forty he met with John KNOX whom he had seen before at 
David DURBOROUGH'S & went with said John KNOX to the ferry house on Trent River opposite 
Newbern to visit his wife Mary KNOX formerly Mary DURBOROUGH; that he then saw the said Mary 
KNOX who made many inquiries about her said brothers & sisters 7 their children- and several years 
afterwards received a letter from one of his friends in Delaware that was brought to this State by the said 
Mary who had been on a visit to her connections in that State. This Deponant saith that when he paid his 
second visit to Delaware as herein before stated David DURBOROUGH was dead leaving a widow the 
sister of this Deponant and three children there alive to wit John one of the Petitioners, Rebecca & a 
young daughter called Martha, & which last had been named after one of her mother's sisters- that this 
Deponant believes from information that Rebecca before mentioned married a Mr. C ASON & died many 
years ago, & has understood & believes that the widow of the said David DURBOROUGH died about 
twenty years ago. This Deponant further saith that besides the connection before mentioned with the 
DURBOROUGH family Hugh ROWE a son of Elizabeth ROWE before mentioned & called Hugh after his 
grandfather married susan another sister of this Deponant. From all that this dEponant hath ever heard or 
known of the DURBOROUGH family this Deponant is convinced that Mary Knox never had a sister 
called Martha & is certain that he never heard of any such until he was told that such a sister is men- 
tioned in Mary KNOX'S will. This Deponant has always understood that David DURBOROUGH was the 
youngest son & mary KNOX the youngest daughter of their parents- and believes that the said Mary 
survived long after all her brothers & sisters were dead & gone- This Deponant further saith that his 
Sister Martha after whom the youngest of David DURBOROUGH'S children was named died unmarried 
ast some time after his first and before his second visit to Delaware herein before mentioned

Pitt County Letters 

Photocopies of these letters were contributed by Paula Souffle of Saint Ann, MO. According to family 
legend, when Samuel W. Jones left Pitt County with his family to go to Tennessee in 1838, they had one 
son who didn't want to go with them. On the third day out, the boy was with them when they broke 
camp after breakfast, but when they stopped for the next meal, he was gone. They figured he'd gone back 
home and they didn't go back after him. The name of the boy in this legend was supposed to be a "Ben- 
jamin" Jones. The evidence of the letters states the boys name to be Redden Jones (maybe with a middle 
name of Benjamin?) When Samuel W. Jones died in 1843 in Anderson Co., Tenn., Jemima lived with her 
daughters Mary Ann and Emily. Mary Ann did not marry but had two sons: David Jones (1858-1952) and 
John Jones (1855-1918). David Jones married four times and his last wife outlived him by a few years. 
Thankfully one of the stepchildren of David Jones photocopied these documents since the last Mrs. Jones, 
suffering from alzheimers, burned the originals in a coal stove to keep warm.

Roberson Family Query 

This undated typed query letter was found in the J. L. Jackson Papers at the Sheppard Memorial Library 
Greenville, NC. The query must be dated previous to 1969. At the bottom of the page it says "See letter of 
Mrs. K. R. Young, 210 Grayling Lane, Monroe La." Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

"The following members of my branch of the Roberson family came to Louisiana from Pitt County, North 
Carolina about 1841, and I believe all these members were born in Pitt County. 

(1) My great-grandmother ROBERSON (I believe her given name was Rosie, and her maiden name could 
have been HEARNE.) Born: date? Died 1874 in Union Parish (County) Louisiana 

married: date? To: ? ROBERSON ( Rosie ROBERSON'S husband died in Pitt County sometime in 
the 1830's but I am not sure he was born in Pitt County, and I do not know his given name.) 

(2) Rosetta ROBERSON (daughter of Rosie ROBERSON) Born: ? Died: 1870 in Union Parish, Louisiana 
Married: ? To: Allen STANCIL Children: Buck, Mack, Sill, Louisa, Josie, Rose, Fannie and Medie. 

(3) Polly ROBERSON (daughter of Rosie ROBERSON) Born: ? Died: ? in Louisiana Married: ? To: 
William ROSS Children: William 

(4) Ben ROBERSON (son of Rosie ROBERSON) Born: in the late 1820's Died: ? in Texas 

(5) John Alexander ROBERSON (son of Rosie ROBERSON) Born: 1832 Died: 1887 in Louisiana Married: 
in Louisiana 

Rosie ROBERSON was the mother of ten children and John Alexander, who was my grandfather, was the 
youngest of the ten. Only four of the children came to Louisiana but I do not know the names of any who 
stayed in North Carolina. My father thinks one of the daughters was named Nettie and that she married a 
HEARNE, but one of my uncles thought Rosie ROBERSON was born a HEARNE. There was a Benjamin 
HEARNE in her family, but I am not sure of the connection."

I am searching the life of my great-grand uncle, John Evans FORBES, born December 26, 1832 in Pitt County, 
NC. He was the second son of my 2nd great-grandfather, Alfred FORBES (1806-1847). I have come upon a 
story that this John Evans Forbes had a close friend named Walter HANRAHAN, and they fought together 
in the Civil War. The story claims that Walter HANRAHAN was killed and John Evans FORBES took on his 
identity by switching ID tags with him. This Walter HANRAHAN was apparently a licensed physician. 
John E. FORBES took these credentials and moved to California to practice medicine (quite successfully, the 
story goes) under his new identity of Dr. Walter HANRAHAN. John E. FORBES had a daughter named M. 
D. "Blanche" FORBES, who was born Sept. 29, 1859 in Pitt County, NC. Her mother apparently died while 



PCGQ May 2004 29 



she was still a child, for it is said that this Blanche FORBES moved to California to join her father in the late 
1860's, and her name was also changed to HANRAHAN. But she kept alive the secret about her father's and 
her own changed indenties. I'm seeking any further information about John Evans FORBES, a. k. a. Dr. 
Walter HANRAHAN, or his daughter, Blanche FORBES, a. k. a. Blanche HANRAHAN, which would cor- 
roborate or disprove this family legend.

Supreme Court Case; Little vs. Perkins 

The following is an abstract of Supreme Court Case #7788; Thomas Little vs. Churchill Perkins and 
others; Pitt Co. Dec. 1859 "need not to be reported." Found at NC Archives, Raleigh, NC. Abstracted by 
Roger Kammerer and Betsy Ross. 

In Equity, Pitt County, Fall Term 1855 
BILL of COMPLAINT: 

On Dec. 26, 1843, Thomas LITTLE of Pitt County executed a deed of trust to Valentine S. JORDAN for 540 
acres of land in Pitt County and slaves: Peter, Charity, Jesse, Malinda, Judy, Little Chaney, Jacob, Arcada, 
Janie, Eliza, Warren, Sam, Maluna, Martha, Amos — Also horses, cattle and hogs, household and kitchen 
furniture. [ NOTE: Arcada and Chaney had children, Eli and Mary]. According to law, the property was to 
be advertised for 20 days at 3 public places in the county. JORDAN sold the said property without having 
advertised it as required and for prices much below the real value. Most of the property was bought by 
JORDAN'S son-in-law, Churchill PERKINS, because very few people at the sale. The neighbors were 
generally not aware of the sale. 

Thomas LITTLE says he was a small farmer, having a wife and several daughters- "plain saving and 
economical people." LITTLE for several years before making the said deed of trust got into an unfortu- 
nate habit of visiting the store of Churchill PERKINS where he procred intoxicating liqours and drank to 
great excess. Because of this LITTLE'S mind became greatly impaired, his family and friends took over 
the management of his business, which he wholly neglected. One of his friends, two years before the deed 
of trust, had gone around and paid his debts for him. LITTLE was engaged in no business and had no 
want of money except to buy liqour. His family managed his farm and hands and from the sale of crops 
obtained enough for their moderate wants. For some years after the execution of this deed of trust, 
LITTLE continued in his helpless and besotted condition. Now LITTLE has returned to reason and 
confronted both Valentine JORDAN and Churchill PERKINS to answer what they did with his deed of 
trust and they said talk to the other. LITTLE asked again when Valentine JORDAN died, but Churchill 
PERKINS the executor and Daniel W. JORDAN neglected and refused to make any explanation or furnish 
any accounts. LITTLE sued PERKINS and JORDAN in Pitt County Court Fall 1855. Moore and Rodman 
lawyers for the plantiff . 

[Note: Daniel W. JORDAN out of State in SC] 

Answer of Churchill PERKINS to the Bill of Complaint: 

Valentine S. JORDAN made his Will in 1852 and the Will has since been probated in Pitt County Probate 
Court with Churchill PERKINS and Daniel W. JORDAN qualifying as executors. Valentine JORDAN was 
trustee of Thomas LITTLE'S deed of trust of Dec. 28, 1843. Valentine JORDAN, as trustee, advertised and 
sold the land and negroes at public sale, one on Sept. 18, 1845 and the other on Dec. 22, 1845, both at 
Pactolus. Other property conveyed by the trust was not sold or taken out of possession of LITTLE, and 
still remains his. Both sales were attended by a considerale number of persons, among whom were 
LITTLE'S creditors. PERKINS bid on the property and purchased a portion of it honesty and in a fair 
competition. The deed was written by Henry I. TOOLE, an attorney and was executed at Pactolus. 
PERKINS says that as far as he knew LITTLE knew what was happening and what he was doing and was 
capable of transacting business and was not in a drunken state. LITTLE owed debts for merchandise to 
the firm of PERKINS & RALSTON and the firm of PERKINS & Co. which succeeded it, of which 
PERKINS was a member of both. PERKINS says that when LITTLE asked for information on the trust he 
was in a drunken state. He had troubled PERKINS about the matter and appeared not to understand. 
PERKINS says LITTLE in a habit of drinking for many years and negligent in his business. LITTLE's 
young children did not make as much as 5 barrels of corn per year. LITTLE purchased everything- 
provisions, clothes and merchandise for his family at PERKIN'S store. The negroes of the trust were bid 
off for LITTLE'S daughters. LITTLE had previously made a deed of gift of all the slaves except Peter 
before executing the trust. The Trustee had no right to sell them and they brought a nominal price. 
PERKINS was the highest bidder on the land and a portion of the negroes. After the sale LITTLE's 
daughters complained to PERKINS that the negroes purchased by him did not bring full value. PERKINS 



PCGQ August 2004 3 



under no obligation to do so, authorized the TRUSTEE to convey the land back to LITTLE'S daughters. 
After all this LITTLE still owed PERKINS $500. PERKINS wants the case dismissed. F. B. 
SATTERTHWAITE lawyer for Churchill PERKINS. 

Amended answer of Churchill PERKINS March 4, 1856 

LITTLE'S lawyer asked for a detail of debts in notes given to Churchill PERKINS & Co. for merchandise 
by the firm before PERKINS & RALSTON. PERKINS says that both firms have long been settled up. The 
books are in an unknown location if they are in existence. PERKINS said he looked in the store for the 
books, which was the place of business of both firms. The books of the firm RALSTON & Co. were sent 
by a servant of Churchill PERKINS to Little River, SC at the request of RALSTON, who is a resident of 
Missouri. PERKINS doesn't know if he sent the books back. 

Court of Equity Spring Term 1856 
Answer of David L. PERKINS 

David L. PERKINS says he was a member of the firm of C. PERKINS & Co. in Nov. 1843 and had been 
there 2 or 3 years previous. He was also a member of PERKINS & RALSTON which preceded it. LITTLE 
traded with both firms. The firm of C. PERKINS & Co. dissolved in 1846 and David L. PERKINS doesn't 
know where the books are. David L. PERKINS was there when LITTLE executed the deed of trust and he 
was sober. PERKINS says LITTLE had an expansive family numbering from 15 to 20. He raised but little 
or nothing on his farm and had to buy everthing to support his family. To PERKINS recollection, 2 or 3 
negro slaves were bid off for or by LITTLE's children, it being suggested at the time that LITTLE had 
given his children a deed of gift prior to the trust and the same were sold for a nominal value.

Deposition of James S. CLARK, Jan. 7, 1857 

I have known Thomas LITTLE since about 1826. 1 lived within three miles of him 12 or 15 years after 
1832. LITTLE had a wife and 5 daughters. He had some 12 or 15 negroes; two old men, two breeding 
women and the balance were children. LITTLE was intemperate and did not support his family. He did 
not make his negroes work and I never saw him do any hard labor. This is how I knew him from 1832 on. 
LITTLE traded at Pactolus with Perkins & Co. and other firms. His credit is not good and owed Hodges 



PCGQ August 2004 4 



LITTLE and Churchill PERKINS. I have seen his carts go to Washington with turpentine and tar and hoop 
poles sometimes. The hoop holes were claimed by his negroes. Little was not extravagant in dress. 
LITTLE was refused credit and James S. CLARK refused him. CLARK knows that Churchill PERKINS 
sometimes refused LITTLE drink at his store. James S. CLARK had a plantation above and below Pactolus 
and used to pass once a week or two or three times a week between them. Thomas LITTLES place was on 
the road between CLARK'S plantations. CLARK says he knows Thomas LITTLE bought goods also from 
William MOORE SLENDER and Jacob HERRINGTON, like sugar, coffee, whisky and some dry goods. 
CLARK was not at Thomas LITTLE sale. He saw the advertisement at Pactolus and saw some of the 
negroes going home with William OUTLAW who bought them. Thomas LITTLE had a small place that 
was poor, the land being low and wet and not ditched. CLARK says that Thomas LITTLE was grossly 
intemperate between 1832 and 1845. He never saw LITTLE drunk except at public places and his mind 
was alright when he was sober. CLARK says that James H. SATTERTHWAITE, son-in-law of Thomas 
LITTLE, is carrying on this suit, that Thomas LITTLE has nothing to do with prosecuting it and is unfit. 

Deposition of James M. BELL, Jan. 7, 1857 

BELL was a clerk for Churchill PERKINS & Co. for about 12 months or longer in 1843. BELL saw Thomas 
LITTLE sign the notes and trust and he appeared sober. BELL lived with Churchill PERKINS and BELL 
left the neighborhood and went to New Bern.

JORDAN says he is 35 years old and Churchill PERKINS married a first cousin of his. JORDAN says he 
has known Thomas LITTLE since infancy, being raised and lived a mile to 1 1/2 miles from LITTLE. 
JORDAN says LITTLE was industrious in his own way, he fished and made baskets and attended his 
small farm. LITTLE had 5 daughters and bought most of his provisions. LITTLE traded with Churchill 
PERKINS at Pactolus in 1837 or 1838. When JORDAN lived with PERKINS, LITTLE had 2 old negro men, 
3 women and several negro children. JORDAN says LITTLE was foolish when he was drunk, but when 
he was a sober he was a good and honest man. LITTLE knew everyones cattle and hog mark in the 
neighborhood. LITTLE had a will of his own. JORDAN says LITTLE had not instituted this suit nor had it 
done. LITTLE thought the matter settled and hoped it was. 

Deposition of Pulaski DUDLEY, Jan. 8, 1857 

DUDLEY says that Thomas LITTLE is about 65 to 70 years old. For the last 20 years he is in the habit of 
getting drunk. He talks sensible when not drinking. DUDLEY thinks him "a man who knows his busi- 
ness." DUDLEY agrees that Thomas LITTLE said that he had no suit and never had a suit with Mr. 
PERKINS (said it last Saturday at PERKINS store). 

Deposition of George A. DANCY, Jan. 9, 1857 

DANCY says he lived with and clerked for Churchill PERKINS when he was about 20 years old. DANCY 
clerked for PERKINS at Pactolus from March 1844 to Jan. 1846. DANCY says that Thomas LITTLE kept a 
lengthy account with PERKINS and says LITTLE was able to do his own business.

mas LITTLE about 10 years. HANRAHAN did not pass Churchill PERKINS store except the last 2 or 3 
years, when he passed back and forth once every 2 or 3 weeks. HANRAHAN met LITTLE at public 
places and Perkins store and believes LITTLE capable of transacting his own business. 

Deposition of John WHICHARD, May 29, 1856 

WHICHARD says he knew Thomas LITTLE for 35 years, as a farmer and tar and turpentine maker. 
Whichard says LITTLE lived not quite 2 miles from Perkins store. LITTLE had a wife, 3 daughters, a 
negro woman, 5 or 6 children and one negro man. WHICHARD says Churchill PERKINS and David

DUDLEY says he has known Thomas LITTLE 25 or 30 years, he was a farmer. DUDLEY says LITTLE 
became more addicted to liquor after PERKINS established his store in Pactolus. DUDLEY heard Josiah 
DANIEL say he'd bought a negro of Thomas LITTLE and that he was going to pay the debts of LITTLE 
and that Churchill PERKINS said he was satisfied up to that date. This conversation took place a few 
days before Josiah DANIEL left which was about 20 years ago. 

Deposition of S. L. MOORE, July 17, 1856 

MOORE says he knew Thomas LITTLE for 20 years as a farmer. LITTLE also made some tar and turpen- 
tine. At the sale of LITTLE'S negroes back in the 1840's, Valentine S. JORDAN cried the property. MOORE

Queries 



I am searching for the GRIZZARD family in Greene and Pitt Counties. John GRIZZARD died before 1880, 
when his daughter, Priscilla GRIZZARD (b. ca. 1858) married in Greene Co. to Marcellus SIMMONS of 
Pitt County. Priscilla's mother was listed as Polly POLLARD on her marriage certificate. However, Polly 
POLLARD may have married again. She had a son, John POLLARD, b. ca. 1869 and another son, William 
Thomas POLLARD, b. ca. 1870. It is believed this ancestor was a full-blooded Cherokee Indian. Since 
Priscilla was b. ca. 1858, her brothers were 11 to 12 years younger.

were in the process of relocating to Hinds Co., Miss, in 1837-38. Archibald FORBES died on March 13, 
1838, at the age of 26. It is believed that he was traveling from Pitt County to Mississippi at the time of his 
death. His only son, Archibald Alexander FORBES, was born in Mississippi on March 14, 1838, the day 
after his fathers death. Archibald FORBE'S widow, Louisa CLARK FORBES, married a few years later to 
George BODDIE and it appears they relocated to Arkansas where they raised another family. Somewhere 
along the way, one of the descendants of Louisa CLARK FORBES preserved a letter that Archibald 
FORBES had written to her in Mississippi from Pitt County on Sept. 9, 1837. Mrs. Jean CALDWELL 
purchased the letter at a collectors show a few years ago and gave me the letter as "next of kin." I am 
seeking further information on Archibald FORBES (1811-1838) that could help me piece together more on 
his life and the circumstances of his death.

Joab Smith Dead 

Goldsboro Messenger, Goldsboro, NC, Thurs., July 4, 1878. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 

"It is the melancholy duty of the Necrologist to chronicle the death of Mr. Joab SMITH. It pleased Al- 
mighty God in His All-wise providence to remove from our midst, by the visiting angel of death, on 
Thursday the 27th day of June, A. D. 1878, our old, venerable, much esteemed and worthy friend, Joab 
SMITH, who was called from this to another, and we feel assured, a better world, in about his hundreth 
year of age. The deceased was born and raised in the county of Pitt and near the place where his remains 
now sleep. Mr. SMITH served in the war of 1812 during Madison's administration under Captain George 
EASON in the North Carolina Melitia. He was a good and faithful soldier as well as citizen, and is the last 
hero of that war in this section "to give up the ship.' He was twice married; first, to a Miss Millie SER- 
MONS, who died years ago, leaving him without children. In the year 1847 he was the second time mar- 
ried to Miss Pollie ELKS, the rite solemnised by the late Dr. Elias I. BLOUNT, then acting as Magistrate for 
the county of Pitt. He leaves a widow now in her sixty-third year of age, with three daughters, all mar- 
ried, to mourn his loss. He has drawn a pension of eight dollars per month since the year 1871, which has 
enabled him to live with plenty of the neccessaries, and but few of the luxuries of life. He was a man of 
most excellent character, possessing qualities of head and heart that endeared him greatly to his relatives 
and friends. He has been a member of the Free Will Baptist Church for the last 65 years, and one who 
honored, by a consistent life, the church of his choice. With the many other good and noble traits of char- 
acter he was a tried and true Democrat. His death was peaceful and happy as he passed away like a lamp 
goes out when the oil is exhausted, without a struggle. Peace to his ashes. E. H. H."

Pitt County Agricultural Society, 1853 



Found in the Tarboro Southerner, Tarboro, NC, Feb. 11, 1854. Contributed by Roger Kammerer. 




"At a meeting of the Pitt County Agricultural Society held in Greenville, on the 4th Thursday of 
December, 1853. Present, John S. BROWN, Esq., James A. BROWN, William MAY, Franklin BELL, Ben- 
jamin BROWN, Willie BELL, Enoch MOORE, Benj. DANIEL, A. D. MOYE, Rich'd E. RIVES, M. 
DICKINSON, Samuel B. MARSH, Alfred MOYE and Willie BROWN. 

The minutes of the preceding meeting were read and approved, — the meeting having first been 
called to order by the President, John S. BROWN. The Treasurer made his report, — nothing received since 
last meeting. 

The unfinished business of October meeting was then taken up, it having been laid over at the 
November meeting, in consequence of the absence of the Recording Secretary. 

The question — "what is the best method of renovating worn out lands?" was taken up. Dr. S. B. 
MARSH gave his views at length on it; also Wm. MAY, Alfred MOYE, Rich'd E. RIVES and others, 
explained their general system of Farming. 

The Resolution of last January meeting, in relation to premiums for the greatest yield of corn or 
cotton, or either, from one acre, (which would not make more than 3 bbls of corn,) was then taken up, and 
the competitors for either or both were requested to show how they had complied with the terms of the 
resolution, in regard to admeasurement, quality of the soil, &c. John S. BROWN, and Benj. DANIEL being 
the only members who had entered their names in time, as competitors for corn, proved to the satisfac- 
tion of the Society that they had fully complied with the terms of the resolution. 

The first premium of fifteen Dollars was awarded to John S. BROWN for the production of thirteen 
Barrels of Corn, on one acre, — Benj. DANIEL received the second premium of ten Dollars, for the produc- 
tion of ten Barrels two bushels and a fraction on one acre. It is believed that either would have nearly 
doubled their production, but for the long drought which nearly burned up their corn in consequence of 
the quantity of manure. Benj. DANIEL being the only member eho entered his name as competitor for 
cotton, took the first premium; having raised 1263 pounds on one acre. 

Additional premiums were awarded to A. D. MOYE for very large Turnips and sweet Potatoes, one 
Dollar; to Willie BELL for same, one Dollar; to Willie BROWN for Water Melon, twenty-five cents. By 
order of the President, the Treasurer paid the foregoing premiums, making in all $36.75. 

Willie BROWN, A. D. MOYE, and Jas. A. BROWN were appointed by the chair, to report on quanti- 
ties of land and kinds of produce for premiums for the year 1854 — to report to the next meeting. 

On motion; ordered that the proceedings of this meeting be published in the New Era and Farmer's 
Journal. 

There being no further business before the meeting, on motion the Society adjourned to the 4th 
Thursday in January, 1854. 

JNO. S. BROWN, Pres't. 

Jas. A. BROWN, Rec. Sec'y." 



Winifred Congleton Dead 

Goldsboro Messenger, Goldsboro, NC, Jan. 15, 1877 

The Washington Echo says Mrs. Winifred CONGLETON of Beaufort County, born 1776, died on the 21st of 
December.

are enjoying a reasonable share of health at this time. Thanks be to God for his mercies. Hoping these 
lines may find you all a live and in perfect health. I have nothing of importance to write you more than 
we have made verry good Crops both Cotton and Corn. Cotton is Selling at about Thirty dollars a hun- 
dred. Commissioners are a running the line that Genl JACKSON treated with the Indians for and I Expect 
that land will be Settled immediately.

would advise all my young relations and friends of that Country to come to Georgia. I would be verry 
glad to See you all again but the Lord only knows whether I can Shall or not, but I should live I intend to 
try and come and See you in a year or two Father Mother and all the family wishes to be remembered to 
you all. I have never had the pleasure of receiving a line from none of you Since I left you. Please write as 
Soon as you Can I Shall not forget to write when opportunity occurs

with the Indians is makeing at this time and little doubt but the whole of the land within the limits of

Mr Hodges LITTLE

Snow Hill Deer. 13th 1834 
Mr Hodges LITTLE 
Dr. Sir 

Yours of the 23 Novr. is at hand and its contents duly noticed. I am much Su ppri sed to hear that you 
had not reed, any letter from me for I wrote to you some time ago and I am truly sory you did not receive 
it for in it I gave you all the instructions necessary for the management of Mr. WILLIS business for the 
present and that in time for you to make all the necessary arangements for it before the comeing in of a 
new year, but however as it is I will mearly say that it is the wish of the old man that you should on the 
first day of Janry. Hire out all of his negros except his Cook woman and one fellow to take cear of of the 
House and lot &c and the fellow to pay what wages he can besides, you are to take notes with good 
security drawn payable to James WILLIS, you will there fore advertise at once those negros to be hired 
out at publick vandue on the day that you can make most convenient for the term of one year, get some 
person to assist you if you want any assistence and pay them for their services what is fair and right, set 
up all the negros old & young and nock them off to the highest bidder, and if thare are any of them that 
will fetch nothing let them out for their victuals & Cloaths, but take cear and not give anything for 
keeping any of them, bee sure all so that you bind the persons who hire them in their notes to give the 
negros the necessary Cloathing. By reference to his day Book you will find to whome he let out his young 
negros and upon what terms he let them out in my former letter I stated all the particulars in regard to 
them but have not time to do so now, it is however a matter of no moment so you get up all of the negros 
and dispose of them as I have stated. 

I have just reed, two letters from Mr. WILLIS and one for you, the letter that he has directed to you I 
have sent to Mr. Jno. W. LATHAM in Washington, you can call on him and he will give it to you. I was 
afraid that if I directed it to you that it would be lost like the one I sent you before, you must pay Mr. 
LATHAM the postage I expect Mr. WILLIS has given you some instructions with regard to his property 
and the management of his business but for that I would endeavour to be more concise in mine, he wants 
you to answer this letter of his and send it to me that I may forward it on to him. 

The old man directs that you Call on Jim for Eighty dollars & Pluto for sixty dollars and pay me for 
what I have advanced and for my time and trouble, which I would be glad you would do as soon as 
possible and come up and fetch it to me and then I will return you the four notes that I took and the list of 
them I am So Closely engaged that I cannot come down thare. I wish you would Call on Mr. Jno. W 
LATHAM and ask him to say what he charge for his services and also Mr. Jno PAUL and to make out abill 
of the same and recept them and fetch them up that I may pay them. I promised to pay those gentlemen 
what was reasonable and fair for their time and trouble I want this matter settled all at the same time. 
Yours Respectfully 

Reuben WALLACE"
